Dear PSASA Member or Visitor,
Join us on Thursday 10 July for our monthly Gauteng chapter meeting.
What you will learn
Learn how to craft deal-closing sales letters that have generated more than R50-million
Are you frustrated that your expensive website is not delivering on its promise of getting you more speaking and training assignments?
Does it drive you to distraction that nobody is signing up to your world-class newsletter?
Do your direct marketing email campaigns deliver paltry results?
If you’ve had enough of the poor results you are getting out of your direct marketing efforts, you should seriously consider attending the next Gauteng Chapter meeting.
Direct response copywriter and Immediate Past President of the PSASA, Jacques de Villiers will be sharing the exact blueprint to writing sales letters that convert.
I have attended one of Jacques’s presentations on web design and marketing. Brilliant value for money and he really shares openly. A great presence and personality as presenter, and important to me … a humble man. I have much respect for Jacques and can really recommend him. Wolfgang Riebe, CSP, Past President of PSASA
In the one-hour session, you’ll discover:
- The anatomy of a well-crafted sales letter
- How to construct an excellent ‘call-to-action’ landing page
- How to get visitors to sign up to your newsletter
- How to write compelling headlines
- The Law of Odd
- What’s more effective … long copy or short copy?
- How to use the Ziegarnik Effect to arouse curiosity
- The silly mistake that Jacques made that got him 93 delegates onto his course in a record 3 days
- How to get testimonials that actually mean something
- The greatest sales letter of all time. Jacques will dissect it and show you how you can ‘swipe it’ and use it for your own sales copy.
- And lots more
Jacques is a talented writer, an amusing speaker and a sales and marketing guru. You can trust Jacques to deliver a smile and keep a promise. I know I do. Sandy Pullenger, Managing Director, nFold.
